I believe that working should be satisfying, enriching, and even fun.  It needs to be more than a paycheck.  Leadership makes a huge difference where our working life is concerned, and it’s time to fix it.

I wrote “The Reluctant Leader” to help make a difference in people’s working lives.  Our leaders want to do a good job, but they often don’t know how, or even what a good leader looks like.  The book doesn’t have all the answers by far, but it’s a start.  Sometimes, that’s what you need to do to effect change – just start.


I have a BA in History from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and an MBA from the Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. I’ve also pursued post-graduate work in adult education with Regis University in Denver.

My work life has been spent at a large technical government agency, a medium-sized bank, and a small software company.  As a teenager / college student, I worked in a hospital laundry room (towel folding was my specialty) and as a bookkeeper.  I’ve held leadership roles at different levels in these organizations.

Other Bits

My husband and I have lived in Germany, Australia, and England as well as in the United States.  I like to think that when you get a bad experience, you get a good story, and the only failure is the failure to learn.  I have a lot of creative hobbies that I love and wish I enjoyed cooking as much as I enjoy eating.
